"Only Nolan could make this potentially forbidding subject matter so thrilling."
★★★★★ Philip De Semlyen Time Out

"A masterfully constructed character study from a great director operating on a whole new level. A film that you don’t merely watch, but must reckon with."
★★★★★ Dan Jolin, Empire Magazine

"The simultaneously old-school and new-school gorgeousness of Oppenheimer can’t be overstressed."
★★★★★ Charlotte O'Sullivan, London Evening Standard

"It’s at once a speeding roller-coaster and a skin-tingling spiritual portrait; an often classically minded period piece that only Nolan could have made, and only now, after a quarter-century’s run-up."
★★★★★ Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph

"Downey is the crucial supporting player, and he gives a shrewd, dynamic performance as the wily, insecure, powerful Strauss."
★★★★★ Caryn James, BBC.com

"Oppenheimer feels like the film Christopher Nolan has been preparing to make his entire career, and it may very well be his best work."
★★★★ Dylan Roth, Observer

"This is the big bang, and no one could have made it bigger or more overwhelming than Nolan."
★★★★ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian

"The movie around Murphy is simultaneously breathtaking and mind-melding."
★★★★ Ed Potton, Times (uk)

"Nolan taps the full sensory potential of moviemaking, pushing picture and sound to meet the scale of the story: clever lines dot the script; the whole project is admirably willing to wrestle with matters of great weight through cinema."
★★★★ Danny Leigh, Financial Times

"Large swathes of the film play out as political thriller, the fuel in its engine being Downey Jr’s titanic colouring of Strauss, all boorishness and manipulative charm."
★★★★ Clarisse Loughrey, Independent (uk)
